BLUE LICK SPRINGS. KENTUCKY. The Cenuine Blue Lick Water, THE healing virtues of which are so fully set forth In this little work, is now shipped from the cele- brated Spring by LA RUE KKOK., sole proprietors. The water from this Spring was formerly sold by Hamilton Gray & Co., whose lease of the shipping privileges of the water expired the 1st day of January, 1881, and no one has now the power to supply the trade with water from thin Justly Ci-li-brated Spring; except ourselves. This most valuable Medicinal Water is now placed at such prices that all will be able to use it. Prompt attention will be given to all correspondence, and orders for the water are respectfully solicited AddnsS LA RUE BROS., Bine Uck Springs, K">. WT2 TRADE MARK the iBtue fcicit Springs, KENTUCKY. C^gjHESE famous Springs were first discovered by @} Major John Finley, with a party of young adventurers from Pennsylvania, in 1773, when Kentucky was a wilderness, uninhabited, ex- cept by Indians and wild animals. After the State began to be settled, for many years the sole depend- ence, of the inhabitants for 6alt was on these Springs, in consequence of which the manufacture of salt was a business of great importance and profit. The ruins of these old works are still to be seen. The early settlers around the Springs were so forcibly impressed by the longevity of both man and beast, '.hat they soon attributed it to the true cause — the valuable medicinal properties of the waters. Not only were the people of the neighborhood long-lived, but thev were remarkably robust in health and en- tirely free from disease. The reputation of the waters spread as rapidly as was consistent with the early t vmes, and the demand for them grew, until shipments are now made to all parts of North America and to many foreign countries. Thousands of invalids visited the Springs, seeking and obtaining health; and, as a consequence, the fashionable world made them a noted pleasure resort. Thomas and Louis Hollady, having leased the property from Major Bedinger about the year 1842, erected a hotel on a vast scale, and under their courtly and liberal management the place rose to a renown second to none in the United States — tne celebrated Saratoga Springs, of New York, being the only rival. The BLUE LICKS was the favorite summer resort of the wealthy and refined southern planters and merchants, with their families. Kentucky's distinguished sons of that day — Clav, Crittenden, Morehead, Rowan, Metcalf, Hardin, Preston, Wicklifife, Guthrie, Prentice, Shelby, Gar- rard, the Breckinridges, Marshalls — were always there in the summer - season. And here assembled yearlv the beautiful and fascinating daughters, not only of Kentucky, but the entire South and many of the Northern States. This continued until the late war, the hotel being under the management of such noted proprietors as the Holladays, Major Aris Throck- morton, John Raine and the Turemarls. In 1802, the great hotel, with all its splendid appointments, was burned to the ground, and subse- quent litigation prevented for years the building of such improvements as were necessary for this grand enterprise. This difficulty being at last removed, six years ago the work of restoring the hotel was begun by W. T. Overbey, and now the present owner of the property, Daniel Turney, of Bourbon County, Kentucky, has completed, at a very large cost, everything necessary to restore the Springs to their former prestige. The buildings are now more extensive, and, by far, more comfortable and prepossessing than in former years. "Tfte aWington," The main bulding, loO yards from the far-famed Springs, stands upon Die site of the old hotel burned, and is of the same dimensions. This is supplemented by a very Wide ell, one hundred feet in length, with double verandas clear around, and the entire hotel affords a promenade of fifteen hundred and eighty feet. Every chamber in the building opens on one of the verandahs. The ventilation of each is perfect. COTTAGES NEAIt THE ARLINGTON. e " Many beautiful Catt^ges have been erected and are tastefully located under the grand old shade trees on the lawn. The Cottages are all newly, neatly and comfortably furnished, and are well adapted to the use of families, vho find them very desirable. THE BILL BOOM, *c. The Ball-Room, Dining Room and Parlors are large and airy. These are supplied with excel- lent music; and to those who enjoy an hour or an evening with Terpsichore, the close of each day offers delight of this nature. Not an evening passes during the w«ek at which this amusement is not to be had. BATHING. The Bathing Department is now complete. New and Rpacious bathing apartments for ludies and gen- tlemen, with hot and cold Blue Lick water, are con- veniently located in the building. Blue Lick baths are highly recommended for invalids, and to the pleasure seeker they are most enjoyable. BILLIARD BOOH. To afford ample amusement to the guests, the pro- prietor has. opened a Billiard Room, furnished with the best Billiard and Pool Tables. BOWLINli ALLEY. A Bowling Alley of large dimenfcions, with the best floors that can be made, and so arranged in regard to ventilation as to be cool at all hours. 7 THE LAWN. The wide and well-shaded Blue Grass Lawn, with its wide-spreading Elms and Maples, is well adapted for Croquet, Archery, Lawn Tennis and all Lawn Games, BOATS. The boating facilities are unsurpassed; the Lick- ing River, which flows by the Lawn, affords a beau- tiful and romantic view for miles. A number of new light-running row-boats, of the most approved pat- tern, float upon its surface, ready for use by those who delight in aquatic sport. FISHING AND HUNTING. The river it stocked with fine fish of various varie- ties, many of which are caught with hook and line, weighing from three to twenty pounds. Foxes abound in the surrounding hills and furnish abundance of fine sport for the lovers of the chase. APPROACHES. The approaches to the Springs are justly regarded as among the most beautiful drives in Kentucky — a State famed for its fine roads and beautiful scenery. The one from the North, beginning at the celebrated Battle Ground — a scene made memorable by the bloody engagement between the Indians and the early Pioneers, the latter led by the historic Daniel Boone — rapidly descends, winding along the river at an altitude of several hundred feet above ita banks, through an avenue of stately forest trees. /Winchester \ Ill Suspension Bridge. At the Licking, just above the fatal ford where the impetuous McGary led his ill-starred followers, across, and near the Springs, is a beautiful Suspen- sion Bridge, which takes the place of one burned during the late war by a section of John Morgan's command, scouring this part of the State. LIVERY AND DIUVES. In this connection the proprietor would state that he has erected a commodious and well-appointed stable and vehicle house, and has supplied it with 11 handsome and fleet horses, and light road wagons and carriages for pleasure driving, and gentle ponies for children. Ample room will be aftorded for the proper shelter and care of horses and vehicles brought here by guests. A practical Kentucky horseman will be in attendance to see that the horses of visitors are properly groomed and cared for. LAUNDRY. A first-class Laundry is attached to the Hotel, where laundrying for guests will be neatly done at reasonable rates. ADDITIONS. Each year additions have been made, among them a large three-story building, containing over- forty rooms, an ordinary, etc. A TELEPHONE LINE Is in operation between the Arlington and Carlisle Station, where it connects with Telegraph Lines to all parts of the world. ANALYSIS Of the waters of the Celebrated Blue Lick Springs. The composition of Blue Lick Water, according to the only trustworthy analysis ever made, (calcu- lated both in 1,000 grains of water, and in the wine pint of 7,(580 grains,) is as follows: Specific Gravity 1,007.

A more recent analysis of the same water by Dr. Peter shows that in spite of the enormous quantities poured lorth by the spring in the last thirty years (or since the first official analysis was made,) there has b;en no change in the relative proportion of the constituents, and no diminution of its medicinal strength. 13 THE 'I I I. 1< IN V I VIBTCES.
